No Checking of Work
This is supposed to be a report on South Carolina, but it's a report on Pennsylvania. While I'm grateful that this sort of data has been made available online, the incidence of errors of this sort makes it clear that not even a cursory check is made before the material is posted. I am also puzzled at the randomness of what is selected to be made available. Series census publications seem most often to be incomplete, with one or more sections being omitted. On the other hand, the sections that are available are sometimes posted as often as 4 or 5 times. Is there a plan here, or are volumes just randomly pulled off a shelf? Whatever the answer to this question, the hit or miss results seem as if there is no plan at all.
